    Is there an autopsy on this device somewhere?

    Can it run other firmwares?

    are you talking about WRT54GC the compact one?...if yes then there aint any 3rd party firmware for that yet...

    No this is the "WRT54GS travel router". I know it's annoying that they named it in the WRT54GS line, when it's in fact even more compact than the WRT54GC. Look just to the left side of this screen, my linksysinfo page is showing an ad for it. Power plug is built right into the unit so no separate wall-wart.

    I'm pretty sure that the answer is no. but I very well could be wrong...

    The router in question in the WTR54GS (vs. WRT54GS)...doesn't that make your dyslexia act up!

    Short answer: No, there is no 3rd party firmware for it.

    Do you know what the dyslexic, insomniac, agnostic did? He lay awake all night wondering if there really was a Dog!

    You are so right, I use WRT so often, I missed that this unit is actually W-T-R.

    Still be interesting to see an autopsy. Perhaps something can be done with it. Just occured to me, a unit like this with builtin powerline network picked up over the AC line, could be the ultimate plug-n-play WiFi device.

    but, powerline isn't very common IMO. It would be nice for you, but I have yet to see a powerline network myself...

    The WTR54GS has the same internals as some USR router already running OpenWRT, so it can run 3rd party firmwares, just none have been build for it yet.
